Baltimore Footage

This footage is flying around the internet and has been suggested to us from multiple sources. We dont know who gets credit for it because it has been seen on VentEnterSearch.com, Statter911.com, and many others. The important thing is for it to reach anyone who wants to see it. Here it is off of YouTube, the writeup below is information that was obtained by Statter911.com

The original video has been removed……Here is the link for the extended version

FROM STATTER911

“STATter911.com has exchanged emails with Baltimore Fire Department Chief Jim Clack this evening. The chief has given us a preliminary run down of what happened leading up to what he says appears to have been a flashover at the fire on Northeast Avenue this morning. (I know, as is normal with these videos, there is a raging debate as to whether this was actually a flashover,  backdraft, or something else.  As usual, I will let you, and those investigating the incident be the judge.) 

According to Chief Clack the fire started in the basement of an occupied row house and appears to have been burning for “a while” before the fire department arrived.  The first engine took a line through the front door to the rear kitchen area. The chief says that crew had some trouble finding the basement stairs. They were in the kitchen when it flashed.”

Updates are still coming in from different sources, we have heard that 7 firefighters were injured, mainly minor burns and a dislocated shoulder. Updates are also coming in on the order of events. We have heard that the first truck had completed initial ventilation, and that the engine was at the top of the basement stairs when this erupted. More to come I’m sure…. There is a video on YouTube that has an extended version found here

    Thats is crazy footage. Unfortunately we can not see any more of the building and any of the other conditions, but it just goes to show the importance of proper ventilation and even more importance of reading the interior conditions. Hopefully we will get more info about what happened and a speedy recovery to the brothers that were injured.
